detroit rock city

This weekend was just what I needed, some time away from home and lots of fun!! We headed out up to Detroit for a work function Andrew's company hosted on Saturday morning for a one night stay at the Greektown Casino. Typically spouses/significant others don't get to come on these fun outings so I was excited when I found out the ladies were invited. Besides that, if you read my previous post, I've been a little down in the dumps and some fun was just what I needed.

We arrived Saturday afternoon a few hours before check-in but we were able to get to our room early - our view from the 23rd floor was AMAZING

After we got situated we headed down to the casino with our spending money and played some slots and ended up loosing quite a bit of cash right away. The party for Andrew's company started at 5pm with cocktails and photo booth pictures followed by dinner and awards. It was nice to finally meet all the people I hear him talk about from work. Following dinner we went to gamble more and won back all the money we lost earlier in the night.

We took a nice walk around Greektown on Sunday morning to see some of the shops and a a German-Catholic Church that was right next to the casino.

I don't think I'll ever be a "casino regular" but it was fun to do something a little different.

What a view! I love staying in hotels downtown in various cities, just so I can have a good view of everything. I've never been to Detroit!
